    ss german 120mm scale resin figures,so far 18 mths putting it together,started with buying a heng long 1/16th scale tank, and before I knew it chased around the web to find some tank riders and stand up figures...figures are by s&t,verlinden,alpine,stormtrooper in the u.k.,and a new modeller jeff shiu,his figures are the camo helmet mg34, and the standing mg42 gunner with white camo leggings..rear view of the mg34 gunner,all my figures were bought and sent to patrick ang in malaysia to assemble and paint,so all credit goes to him for great artwork...

    This is excellent. I'm sure you know this, but the FG42 was issued to parachute units and the one piece peadot camo outfit seems to be from 1944.

    I took the liberty to 'edit' the first picture.

    Good idea with the Sepia.
